Dr Darshan Kaur Mann, Clinical Psychologist
Thank you for visiting my profile. It takes a great deal of strength to seek help and to begin to work through personal difficulties.
I take great care to provide a supportive and confidential space, in which I can listen to your concerns without judgment, and work with you to help you to overcome your difficulties.
I work with people experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, work issues, bullying and self-esteem issues.
Your difficulties may not necessarily fit neatly into the above categories, however. Perhaps, you're looking for support in navigating difficulties in certain relationships in your life, or perhaps you would like guidance in dealing with a specific problem you are facing. Perhaps you are looking for support in finding a greater sense of balance in your life or in working towards creating a richer, more meaningful life for yourself.
Regardless of the issue, as a clinical psychologist, I am trained and experienced in a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), which I draw on to help my clients to work through their difficulties and to move closer to the life they want to live.
I work with adults, young people and children. Please get in touch for a free consultation to discuss how I can help you.
In light of recent events surrounding Covid-19, I am offering one-off and ongoing therapy sessions for those looking for support in dealing with heightened anxiety due to Coronavirus, as well as other psychological/emotional issues resulting from the pandemic. Sessions will take place remotely, via telephone or online video systems.
